This past weekend, over 13,000 people visited the annual MCC British Columbia Festival for World Relief at the TRADEX in Abbotsford. The weekend raised $920,000 and counting to support uprooted and vulnerable people both locally and globally.
By 4:00 pm on Friday night the line was already growing with families, friends and supporters, young and old. The Crescent Sky kicked off the stage’s performances at 5:30 pm, followed by Ryan McAllister and the Live Auction at 7:00 pm. The crowd continued to grow, as attendees were entertained by Cliff Prang’s Comedy Show until the end of the evening.
Saturday began with the Pancake Breakfast, and the Pedaling for Hope Cyclathon. The Children’s Auction started at 10:00 am and the 1st Annual 3 Point Competition followed. All and all, the weekend was a time of community, as old friends met, new friends were made, kids played in the Children’s Area and booths continued to showcase varying works of art and craftsmanship.
